Today we are meant to be sharing bookish memories for top ten tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) but as I missed this topic from 2 weeks ago and it is still Sci-Fi Month I figured I’d just share this one with you instead.
Earlier they showed Star Trek: Picard here in the Netherlands and while it certainly wasn’t perfect, husband and I quite enjoyed watching it. I was so happy to see old favorites again. That helped a lot. Anyway I thought it would be the perfect show to point you in the direction of some books to read.
Psalm for the Wild-Built (Monk and Robot 1) by Becky Chambers
While Psalm takes place on our earth entirely and it has quite a different feel, it overlaps in certain points regarding life of AI and idealistic views on the world.
Ancillary Justice (Imperial Radch 1) by Ann Leckie
Stick it to those in charge is how I remember Ancillary Justice mostly and while Picard won’t use those words he is quite being a rogue at the start of this show, talking against those in charge.
The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
A crew of misfits that somehow end up fitting together just right.
Seven Devils by Elizabeth May and Laura Lam
The same as above but they fight for the same cause.
Leviathan Wakes (The Expanse 1) by James S.A. Corey
A crew that has to deal with the big chaos because those in charge suck.
